the Babyhuis


This is what het Babyhuis actually does, it prevents that mothers and their baby’s will be separated.
The Babyhuis is an innitiative as from the end of 2013 resulting in a home in the Centre of the City of Dordrecht, a shelter for mothers and their babies who are in need of special care, attention and support in looking after their baby. The Babyhuis offers temporary living accommodation, care and support to pregnant women as well as mothers just giving birth.
We have at our disposal 11 mother-child units, spilt into three phases of intensive support leading into independence.
Over the last years our foundation managed to open locations in Dordrecht and Capelle a/d IJssel and we intend to start operations in Schiedam (2019) and in Leiden (2020) .
The Babyhouse should not be called Babyhouse, but Angelhouse. Because in this house there is respect for my problems, people listen without judgment and I am put back in my power to be able to do it together with my girl.


It happens that one encounters moment in life one has to face problems which makes it difficult to look properly after your baby and give it the necessary attention.
Het Babyhuis is open day and night for having a consultation with everybody who wishes to know how we can take care of your baby including the opportunity for the mother to avail herself of a room and peace so badly needed to settle life again. Together with your baby you can live in het Babyhuis where you will get professional guidance and proper treatment.
Het Babyhuis is a homelike surrounding, a place where love and harmony go hand in hand offering mother and baby rest.

The Babyhuis is a home that feels like a warm blanket. A place where I felt respected and all the space was given to build a bond with my son.
